As we age, our skin becomes loose and less elastic. The main reason for this is the reduction in fibroblast cells, which are building blocks of collagen proteins that help keep our cells strong and connected. Aging results in wrinkles and sagging, which makes our skin appear very dull — but there is a way to combat this process through microneedling.
Obviously, we can’t stop aging; but we can definitely slow that process down. SkinPen's® goal is to give everyone a chance to look healthier and feel better as we age. Microneedling is also known as collagen induction therapy, which is a safe and chemical-free method to trigger new collagen production.
Microneedling therapy is a very simple procedure that uses a hand-controlled device with tiny, shallow needles to puncture your outer layer of skin to create a controlled skin injury. This damage to the skin will stimulate your body to produce new collagen and elastin. The freshly produced collagen will rejuvenate your skin by filling in fine lines, resulting in an overall improvement in the texture and tightness of your skin by reducing the wrinkles, discoloration and scars that can help you to look more healthy and youthful.
How many numbers of treatments does one need? The number of treatments needed is indicated by the results that you want to achieve. Some clients are happy with a treatment every year, some like to have a SkinPen® treatment quarterly or even monthly.
Please note that all treatments are spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to ensure the health and safety of your skin. The risks involved in microneedling treatments are minimal and so is the downtime.
Experts in the field of microneedling claim that it is the only rejuvenation treatment that maximizes penetration of essential cell nutrients and maximizes release of growth factors associated with the positive aspects of wound healing simultaneously.
